Official Launch of Tok Guru's Blog

Dari Sudut Perspektif: Blog Rasmi Tuan Guru Nik Aziz Nik Mat
Tok Guru's Blog Link

The blog of Tuan Guru Nik Abdul Aziz was officially launched two days ago, together with the launching of Aptus Wi-fi. The blog entitled "Dari Sudut Perspektif" aimed to write about his thoughts and ideas about poltical issues, current issues, and religion.



He started the launching of Aptus Wi-fi and his blog with a very powerful ayah from surah An-Nahl (16:125):
Invite (all) to the Way of thy Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for thy Lord knoweth best, who have strayed from His Path, and who receive guidance.

His blog is different with others blogs because it has two version: rumi and jawi. He hoped that the blog could become the a reference to reporters so that all his thoughts would not make confusion or even be manipulated.

"I mark, therefore I am" - Mr Wise

I am promoting one of my teacher's blog, called Mr. Wise. Steve Wise is really a great and outstanding and knowledgeable who does not only teach English, but also expands students thought, motivation and life skills. This is some lines from his blog:

I mark, therefore I am

steve-marking

I love teaching. There is absolutely nothing in the world I would rather do. I love to learn and dig up new and interesting facts I can use to enrich my lessons. I love to learn new technologies and incorporate them into my lessons. I love the interchange of ideas among my colleagues from different disciplines. I love the interaction with the kids I teach and joy I get from seeing them grasp new concepts that will help them in their futures. I even love the rhythm of my job, the pressure of exams, the pleasure of the holidays. I love everything about my job. Except the marking.

I hate marking. It is boring and repetitive. I find it really hard to keep my mind on task, and I need the constant stimulus of caffeine and music to keep my mind awake. I think, “I have already taught this concept a dozen times, and they still don’t get it.” I think of all the other things I would rather be doing. I think of all the jobs that don’t require marking, or wasting entire weekends on essentially unpaid labour. There isn’t a single thing about marking that I like. Except that it is an essential part of teaching (see paragraph one).

Mikhail - Ramlee Awang Murshid

http://www.alaf21.com.my/poster/images/POSTER-MIKHAIL.gif

The newest novel from the best-selling author, Ramlee Awang Murshid: Mikhail is now sold. The concept of the novel is really interesting, and the well-known author itself, has written many thriller novel and I hope this would be one of the best! The synopsis of the novel below (in malay):

MIKHAIL – bukan sekadar sebuah nama. Selama 16 tahun menjadi pelarian di perantauan, dia muncul semula memburu mangsa-mangsanya. Mikhail membunuh kerana dendam lama. Sewaktu usia remaja, keluarganya telah ditembak mati. Mikhail telah diselamatkan Dickens, seorang lelaki Amerika Syarikat yang juga merupakan rakan niaga ayahnya, Tuan Sadon. Dickens melatih Mikhail menjadi seorang pembunuh profesional untuk membela kematian keluarga.

Dalam pada itu, Mikhail juga menghidapi sejenis penyakit paranormal. Apabila retina matanya terkena cahaya matahari atau silauan lampu yang terang lagi tajam, dia akan berada dalam satu dimensi yang tidak diketahui. Kadangkala dia terperangkap antara dua dimensi – fantasi dan realiti. Akibatnya, Mikhail sukar membezakan mana yang benar.

RAMLEE AWANG MURSHID menampilkan novel MIKHAIL sebagai satu agenda yang dipengaruhi wang bertunjangkan kuasa. Wang serta kuasa dijadikan sandaran sebagai satu simbol kejahatan. Mereka yang enggan bekerjasama akan dijatuhkan hukuman mati. Mikhail pula adalah alat kepada misi pembunuhan itu. Saspens dan penuh emosi!
